Officials work for water quality
I would like to congratulate the city of Rochester for securing a $275,000 Total Maximum Daily Load Grant.
The grant, which was approved by the Minnesota Public Facilities Authority, will be used for a shoreline buffer of native vegetation around Silver Lake to reduce the concentration of fecal coliform bacteria that reaches the lake from runoff contaminated by goose and pet waste.
The funds were appropriated as part of the Clean Water Legacy Act to restore impaired waters.
Again, congratulations to Rochester and city officials for securing this grant and being committed to improving water quality.
Rep. Randy Demmer
